The Biennial Consortium is a selective network of New York City’s art and cultural institutions, all presenting and supporting performances and exhibitions that align with the Performa 17 biennial. These series of partnerships and copresentations highlight the myriad of art and cultural events that makes New York the performance capital of the world every other November. The Consortium celebrates the creative history of the city and its legacy of radical performance that, since the 1950s and 60s, has brought together artists of all disciplines and made New York the center of the international avant-garde.
From the very first biennial in 2005, Performa established this collaboration as the heart of the biennial, setting the stage for city-wide partnerships.
